Andropathy
« on: August 14, 2012, 12:07:18 am »
I'm a 42 years old man.

I suffer from mild gynecomastia, hairy virilism, visceral fat, low libido to zero and chronic protrunding hemorrhoids!
After a protein diet I have lost a lot of fat and become skinny!
But if I eat normally I put the visceral fat and gynecomastia.
In the past I suffered from prostatitis: I have now no jet of sperm in ejaculation!

What do you think about it?

A few quick questions for you:

--What do you mean by a "protein diet"?

--Are you an exerciser?  If so, how much an how often, etc.?

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

That sounds like you're talking about a traditional Atkins Diet.  I'm not a big fan of those for many reasons that I outline here:

http://www.peaktestosterone.com/Atkins_Low_Carb_Diet.aspx

I understand what you're saying about the visceral fat.  However, the key to avoiding visceral fat is generally physical activity and exercise as well as limiting stress and increasing sleep.  Cortisol will push the fat right to the midsection.  But, if you're not active, it's very hard to keep off the pounds.  Remember that men tend to gain stomach fat because of our hormonal profiles, so we are very vulnerable to this.

Check out some more information here if you're int'd:

The only way to combat it is lots of exercise and activity along with "calorie management" and sleep.  I can't emphasize the sleep aspect enough:  the more you're awake, the more you eat.  And the more tired you are, the more you eat.  Studies show that those with less sleep eat around 250 calories more per day I believe and over a year, that's a lot of pounds of fat. 

Lack of sleep also increase appetite and raises cortisol and insulin levels, which will "inflate that spare tire":

Btw, I know you didn't mention sleep, but it's such a common issue that I wanted to include it on the thread...
